I was given a never been flown before 049 Cox Cessna Skylane from the late 1980s. Still had the starter pack with the can of fuel, starter battery and the 2 channel radio. I have never had a glow style plane before but I got a new battery and tried starting it last night. I managed to get it to fire up a few times but never got it to run for very long. Obviously a bit of a learning curve trying to get the right needle valve setting etc. while not taking off my finger
If I get it running better I would like to try to fly it however I heard that it can be a challenge to fly with no throttle control.
I like the idea of keeping it original but also have thought about converting it to electric. I have seen a few threads on this but am wondering what the general thought is on this. Is it worth doing and if so what would be a good power combo for this model?
